The woman who was forced to resign from a Christian school in Ohio last year after photographs of her appeared on a “revenge porn” website was arrested on Friday for filing false police reports.
Jamie Climie, who had been teaching at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, told police that the iPhone containing the nude images of her had been stolen, and that she had no idea how they had ended up on the website, as she had only shared them with her husband.
She was placed on administrative leave after the photographs surfaced online, and resigned shortly thereafter.
During the course of their investigation, police discovered that the images had not, in fact, been shared with her husband, but that they had been taken for and shared with a married acquaintance of hers with whom she had been carrying on an affair.
Police were called to Climie’s home on November 24 after she reported that her phone had been stolen and nude images of her on it had been posted online.
After a forensic investigation of the cellphone records, police determined that it was Climie who had sent the image, and that she had done so to someone other than her husband.
Climie has been charged with obstructing official business, a second-degree misdemeanor.
